Sepia Saturday this week is mainly about dogs and perhaps other pets. We were never a dog family. Friends had dogs, but not us.
There was Lanham’s dog in the 1950s, which the children used to ride like a pony.
Or going back to about 1920 my mother’s friend, the Rawnsleys in Hay, had the ugly pooch on the right.
Some people have both a cat and a dog as found on the internet in 2008 but uncredited.
On the other hand we were a cat family. Even my great grandmother’s second cousins in the Borland family, included their cat in a family photo
We had a cat most of the time, sometimes black and white but mostly tabby.
But the highlight came in 1975 when we had two Siamese cats.
Let me introduce you to Mumma Mitzi and her five kittens. A good education for the children.
There are five kittens in the box but one of them has her head tucked down.
Good homes were found for all of them.
Meanwhile it’s raining cats and dogs over at Sepia Saturday this week.
